Last week's release -- Vikram Bhatt's Raaz 3 -- saw a great turnout in theatres. If it keeps up the performance, it could be well on its way to becoming a hit.

While the critics have generally panned this Bipasha Basu-Emraan Hashmi starrer, the film clocked in impressive collections in its opening weekend.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani gives the box office verdict for the week.
